Fighting for the rights of all motorcyclists since 1976

Hi everyone from Jinx & Patty,

Well let’s start off by congratulating the raffle bike winner. Chris Carpenter from Central Lake Michigan. He is also a new member of ABATE! Thanks to Region 4 for allowing us to have the drawing along with their 9-11 event. And everyone who bought or sold tickets.

Now let’s talk about the MOTM’s. Patty and I will be leaving on the 19th because I have meetings on Wednesday. Michigan ABATE has been busy this year as usual. We were able to get 2 bills past! Our awareness bill 575 and the new handle bar height from 15” to 30”. Working hard on getting the prosecutors and judges to in force the law for killing a motorcyclist. Not just a slap on the hand!! Along with our continued fight on the insurance industry. Never ending battle.

Question to all reading this! Do you belong to MRF? If not WHY?!?!

I made my new member increase as planned at the MOTM’s last year. Also continue signing up clubs as sustaining clubs. Who can also join as individual members. If I haven’t been to your club to talk to your members call or message me and I will be more than happy to do so.

That’s it for now hope to see a lot of you in Denver.
